Hey, boy, I need two dollars and I’ll be on my way

I’ll be down at the Feed and Seed to buy me some bait

And I’ll be wandering the roads, far away from home

Pole across my shoulder and no place to go

 

And I’ll be waiting all day long

And I’ll be waiting for nothing at all

 

Every car drives by without a passing glance

I could beg for food, but I’m ashamed to ask

So I’ll be on my curb in cardboard sheets

With sole-less shoes and calloused feet

 

And I’ll be waiting all day long

And I’ll be waiting for nothing at all

 

Every day I wander

Is this even real

Every hour I ask myself

Why I’m still here

 

Hey, boy, I’ve got no change, roof, or bed

And I have got no place to lay my head

But if you follow me, I can show you where

The fishing’s good, and there’s food to spare

 

And I’ve been waiting all day long

And I’ve been waiting to bring you home
